Sentencing changed to July 1 for Jesse Jackson Jr.

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A scheduling change means both former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. and his wife, Sandi Jackson, will be sentenced on the same day in Washington federal court.

The former congressman's sentencing was rescheduled on Friday. He was to be sentenced on June 28 but now will appear on July 1. Sandi Jackson was already scheduled to be sentenced that day. Jesse Jackson Jr. pleaded guilty in February to misuse of $750,000 in campaign money. He faces up to nearly five years in prison.

Former Chicago alderman Sandi Jackson pleaded guilty to filing false joint federal income tax returns that understated the couple's income. She faces up to two years in prison.

Jackson had been a Democratic congressman from Illinois from 1995 until he resigned last November.
